Wool Pillows & Wool Dryer Balls


In a nutshell: The wool soaks up some of the moisture in your laundry as it dries, but then evenly distributes it into the air – helping your dryer stay humid longer, which exponentially reduces static cling. In addition, this “soaking and releasing” action makes your clothes dry faster. And all of these things together mean fewer wrinkles.


Simply toss them into the dryer with your wet clothes – that’s it! Or if you want to use them as a replacement for scented dryer sheets, here’s what you need to do:

Run your clothes through an entire dryer cycle with the dryer balls. When the clothes are dry, remove two of the dryer balls and place about 3-5 drops of essential oil on each of them. Toss them back in the dryer and turn it on for 10-15 minutes on a “no heat” cycle. Remove, fluff and fold!




Wool Is Hypoallergenic ~ Wool is resistant to bacteria, mold, and mildew, which can trigger allergic reactions in some people. . Wool quickly absorbs and releases moisture and thus does not allow the damp conditions that molds thrive on. People with chemical sensitivities can also sleep without suffering if the wool is untreated. Dust-mite allergens are the leading trigger for asthma attacks, but dust mites need moisture to survive, so they don’t like wool.

Wool Thermo-Regulates and is remarkably comfortable in all seasons. In the winter it warms you without overheating or causing ‘clamminess’. Conversely, in warmer seasons, it actually helps to keep you cool by wicking moisture away from your skin.

Naturally Fire-Resistant ~ the protective lanolin coating found in wool makes it naturally resistant to combustion.

When it wears out it can be safely put in your garden. This means it has a low impact on the environment while being produced, and a positive impact when it is composted and returned safely to the earth.

    I didn’t know you could compost wool. Are there any specific things I should do to facilitate this?
